After a very successful series in 2018/19 and our exciting and diverse, inaugural summer festival we are pleased to announce our 2019/2020 Broadstone Music Series of concerts.
We have worked hard to bring an interesting array of concerts that will bring much enjoyment to lovers of classical music in our community. Ultimately, each concert will have its own individual page full of information about the events, ticket buying options, venue and timings etc. In the meantime here is a sneaky look at the line up for the rest of 2019.
To mark our 10th season, we are presenting an ambitious project involving a complete cycle of the 6 Brandenburg Concerti of JS Bach. A year of workshop immersion, led by Fiona Mclean-Beuchel (Head of junior strings at Trinity Laban, with invited supporting BSO tutors) into the complete Brandenburg Concerti plus one other work which ties in with the instrumentation enabling each ensemble to combine together. These will be performed at intervals throughout the season by our local senior young musicians who will come together to form the ‘Broadstone Camerata’, beginning with the 1st and 3rd concerti in concert on October 6th from 5-6pm at St John’s Church BH18 8AR. There is a concert after each phase of this exciting project.
FREE CONCERT ADMISSION, with retiring collection towards future music projects with young musicians.
